secretary john bryson >> bill: a lot of talk about gun control. will we see any action this time? good morning everybody. what do you say? good to see you today. it is tuesday december 18. this is the "full court press." we're coming to you live from washington, d.c. hope you're off to a good start wherever you happen to be in this great land of ours. obviously i'm not. and it is great to see you. invite you to join the conversation any time by giving us a call at 1-866-55-press. or sending us a little tweet message on twitter at bpshow. we're following you at bpshow. and on facebook. facebook.com/billpressshow here in our nation's capital. there is word that after president obama and speaker boehner met yesterday at the white house in the oval office for some 45 minutes there is word that they're getting closer to a deal. i was out for dinner last night when i got a quick text from the white house saying president obama had agreed to up the limit on the tax cut from $250,000 to $400,000 meaning that under that pla
are certainly planning to take action if that eventuality were to occur. gwen: but given the lessons of libya and egypt, what -- places where we intervened and felt we had, to what does take action mean? >> to lower expectations about what we can achieve by intervention. the situation in syria was getting so much that the costs of inaction were becoming so high they outweighed the risk of doing nothing. clearly the administration has come to that point. the radicalization of the opposition is one big point. they worry if he loses control it might fall into the hands of an al qaeda-type group. they also worry that that group might be the strongest group post assad and that sweg ways into an afghanistan kind of nightmare. it's spilling over to all the neighbors, many of whom are close allies of ours, jordan, turkey. i felt the administration thought it had to take a lot more assertive action. >> what is the pressure of russia, on moscow to dole with this? they've been backing their ally syria. where are they? >> secretary clinton met with the foreign minister of russia a couple of days ago. obv
state, that we need action, and people say, well, it has to be comprehensive, and, sure, it has to be comprehensive, but there are certain things we can do right away. we could get rid of assault rifles. we can get rid of magazines that have more than ten bullets in them. had this guy been limited to a magazine clip that had ten bullets, nearly half those children would survive. it would wouldn't limb nature on incidents like this, but we can cut down on the carnage significantly. we can also close the gun show loophole. you know, it's shocking, alex, that 40% of the guns purchased in america are purchased without the buyer being subject to a background check. even nra members, 74% of nra members and 89% of all gun owners want background checks before anybody can get a gun, so the men and women in congress have to stiffen their backs, not be afraid of the organization the nra, because the members of the nra are better than the organization, and it's time for us to act finally once and for all. >> howard, your boss, mayor michael bloomberg, has been leading the charge on gun cont
. >> okay. this is a vote just in the house. when is the action going to be complete? when will the senate complete that? >> well, here in michigan there is a constitutional provision that requires bills to lay over for a period of five days. we are expecting a vote in the senate by next -- next week on tuesday, and so, you know there will probably be, you know some more activity throughout the weekend. the legislature has announced session days throughout the weekend, which is pretty uncommon here in michigan so this is not going to stop at least for the in connection few days. then from there, it will go on to the governor's desk where today he indicated he would sign this so-called right to work bill. >> when was aich was a surprise? >> the governor has been consists ent saying it was not on his agenda didn't think it was a prior to. he testified before a congressional panel this year saying he didn't think it was appropriate for michigan in 2012. two days ago, he was asked by a reporter he finally said, it's on the agenda. this morning he w

the other way. demint's decision means that the center of politician action in 2014 will be in the state of south carolina. three marquee statewide contests down there, two senate races and the governor's race. the fighting atmosphere of the palmetto state is legendary. throw in all of the state contests, the presidential primary season that kicks off very early in that state because it's early. and you've got yourself a humdinger down there. south carolina governor nikki haley does get the job of appointing demint's replacement who will serve until 2014 when there is a special election. she said yesterday she could make that decision within a week. among the names in the mix, congressman tim scott, former congressman barrett, henry mcmaster who was a candidate for governor in 2010, nathan ballentine and ted pitts. now many conservatives made it clear that they prefer tim scott and are bordering on strong-arming nikki haley, trying to box her into doing it after demint's announcement. look at the statement scott himself released. quote, looking forward. governor haley will now appoint a
long we have used politics and the second amendment to cover up our lack of action. yes, the supreme court affirmed we have a right to bear arms, but in that same ruling the court made clear that right is not unlimited. we do not, as justice scalia put it, have an unlimited right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever for whatever purpose. our individual right to bear arms is limited by a right among others to keep our children safe. any of those children could have been one of ours and for 20 parents, it was. we may not be able to stop every crime, we know that no single law or set of laws can prevent every act of senseless violence in our society, but we have the ability and the no-how to prevent many of them. we must simply find the courage. we can no longer be bystanders to injustice. we cannot continue to look on and do nothing. as shakespeare said, the fault lies not within our stars but in ourselves. we must act. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the chair recognizes the gentleman from washington, mr. mcdermott, f
inaction. that means he's committed. he is going on the record, some kind of action. >> that, of course, david letterman monday night addressing the horrific school shooting. good morning, i'm brian shactman this is "way too early." a lot to get to this tuesday, including new developments in the fiscal cliff negotiations. of course, with the year-end deadline less than two weeks away, the country's entire attention seems to be shifting to newtown, connecticut with lawmakers putting a renewed focus on gun control. first signs of a changing dynamic in washington. many believe friday's unspeakable acts in connecticut could mark a tipping point. the "washington post" reporting that president obama ordered cabinet members to order proposals to curb gun violence, a push that could include a new ban on assault rifles. sources say vice president joe biden will spearhead that effort. still the white house press secretary jay carney wasn't ready to unveil specifics. >> it's a complex problem that will require complex solution. no single piece of legislation no single action will fully
secretary jay carney warned that no single action or piece of legislation will prevent shootings like friday's attack. >> crowds lined up for the first of 26 funerals starting with 6-year-old noah pozner. they fell fwhook the ritual of never knowing again. >> they won't be able to drive go on the first date. >> it doesn't just break our hearts, it shatters them. >> neither senate leader called for any new gun laws. >> it was tied to the crusade they knew about. >> taking positions on common sense measure that is he believes should be taken to help address this problem. he made clear that more needs to be done. >> far more hesitant than the president at that dramatic prayer service. >> i will use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens from law enforcement and mental health professionals to parents and educators in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this. because what choice do we have? >> today new york city mayor michael bloomberg mocked the idea of the fiscal cliff might distract the ability to come together on gun control. >> if congress and the presid
is standing by on the new york stock exchange. nicole: you are seeing back-and-forth action on the dow jones industrials. they do seem to like it because basically it is the fed putting everything on a silver platter here and is giving it to the world and printing more and find more. it is doing that for an extended period. the people on wall street are saying what are they trying it to unemployment rates you saw the market selloff and now regain its footing. you do the qe forever. gold will be something that we should take a look at. the dollar is something that we have watched slipping away. it is continuing to do that. we have seen things and drugs doing well. the dow jones industrials are up they have of a percent for the sixth day in a row. people were thinking that the fed would have a very accommodative sense. one of the things that we should look at is the market is very reactionary. the truth of the matter is they are not pulling anything and they are not raising rates anytime soon because the economy is not sustainable on its own. while you are seeing some minor improvements here a
. talk about that a little bit. we're only six days away. are you surprised by the lack of action here in washington on the fiscal cliff considering the dire implications for a lot of budgets in cities around america? >> actually, look, i am surprised. been around the block just a couple times. i've seen different things in the past, but this is very serious business, and apparently some members of congress just don't get it. the -- you can call it whatever you want to call it, but certainly fiscal is in front of it and it's not good. taxes going up for all americans, not a good thing. significant, possibly devastating budget cuts coming down to certainly state and local governments, not a good thing. and so this seemingly bad game of chicken, you know, this is not some schoolyard game here. this is about people's lives, it's about their livelihoods, it's about the future of cities, it's about programs that need the dollars to provide services that the citizens want and expect is lack of doing your job. and so congress, it seems to me, should be flying, literally, back into session to
marines were killed in action. when he came home to america, he suffered from ptsd, as many of our warriors do. he spent time in a recovery facility in california to cope with the mental wounds of war. then in august, john decided to get some r&r. he wanted to go to costa rica with a fellow marine, ian, and they wanted to go on a surfing trip. according to ian, surfing gave john a peace of mind and helped really with his therapy. so the two packed up their car with their surf boards and began their journey from florida to costa rica. their trip took them through texas to the border, brownsville, texas. there they crossed the international border into matamoros, mexico, and that's as far as they got. john carried with him 100-year-old antique gun, a family air loom that belonged to his grandfather. when they arrived at the customs and border protection in texas, john did what he was supposed to do. he filled out all the necessary paperwork. he talked to u.s. customs and verified with them that the gun did not violate any mexican law. the two allegedly handed the mexican officials th

, we would take other actions. that is what we have done today is follow-through what we said we would do in september. i don't think, relative to last month, i don't think we have significantly added accommodation. in my view, and many of my colleagues, what matters primarily is the mix of assets on the balance sheet. it is important that we are acquiring treasury securities and mbs, taking those out of the market and forcing investment -- investors and two other closely related assets. it is not just the size of the balance sheet, per se. the amount of stimulus is more or less the same, it is a follow-through from what we sought in september. in terms of criteria, we have announced an initial amount of $85 billion per month of purchases. we are prepared to bury that as new information comes in. if the economy's outlook gets most of the stronger, we will begin to ramp down the level of purchases. the problem with giving a specific number is that there are multiple criteria with which we make this decision. we will look at the outlook of the labour market but we will also look at other
are affected by this increase as possible, moving down that path, is the right course of action for us. >> good morning, first i'd like to say that i think all of our hearts and prayers are with the families in newtown, connecticut. as a father, i cannot even imagine the utter horror that those families are going through right now, grieving the loss of their children and their loved ones. as far as the fiscal cliff is concerned, as the speaker has said, we remain committed to trying to minimize the impact on hard-working families and small businesses. in this country, as far as tax increases are concerned. we look to find the answer to solve the problem on the spending issue, here in washington. the president is not yet there. he has not come to where he needs to be, in order for us to push through a bill that really does begin to address the problem. and as a speaker said, that's why we are now discussing an alternative plan, if the president and the white house, cannot come our way. thank you. >> and owe eric cantor and speaker boehner talking about what we had mentioned at the top. hour that
weight times and backlog or all the solutions? >> i would say we would have actions in progress now. i think you may be familiar with our veterans benefits management system automation of what has to this point been a paper bound process. why, in this department, where we have one the country's best electronic, and we have been developing the tool for the last two years. it's in the process of being fielded now. we'll be at 18 of the regional offices before the end of december, and we'll be fully fielded in the system for 2013 that eliminates the backlog as we indicatessed we -- indicated we would in 2015. in the meantime, the tremendous relationship with dod will begin to affect the claims that are about to be created because we have agreed to link up both personal and medical data bases so there is not this search for information in the future. >> [inaudible] >> secretary, can you help us understand your assessment if the country goes off the fiscal cliff, if there's sequestering, the impact on the afghanistan-iraq generation of veterans, those getting out now, all be it not a direct
of what they believe is virtue. it is a totalitarian society because it dictates your scope of action in life. it dictates fundamental moral choices about who to marry and whatever, all kinds of stuff. that's another way in which we need to understand and that also leads to some deeper appreciation of how you go about tackling this. very briefly, we should distinguish the term liberalism from democracy. democracy is simply a process. you had an election. he took a bow for their own enslavement and often do. people forget this. they think world for freedom. i'm sorry, but there's a constituency that is per submission. this is a site goes fact of life that is not fully appreciated. in the west. so how do you go about it? to distinguish between democracy and liberalism and you try as best you can to promote the spirit of liberalism, even if it is procedurally at the expense of the brotherhood. >> your response to that? >> i'm listening to this discussion which i enjoy thoroughly, but my mind as to how we do this. and i would throw home one point that i'm trying to stress here that i may

action from washington, it will be a stain upon our nation's commitment to protecting the innocent including our children. this is not a partisan issue. this is just a bunch of people who i think are cowed by the nra. as i said yesterday, do you think the nra has power? just remember the number one priority was to defeat barack obama. last time i checked he will be inaugurated again. >> mayor bloomberg will be live on "morning joe" later this morning. two leading democrats who have earned high praise from the national rifle association are now rethinking their stance on guns. last night senator mark warner of virginia became the latest to call for action. >> i've been a long-time supporter of second amendment rights. you know, i believe every american has second amendment rights, and the ability to hunt and it's part of our culture. i had an nra rating of an "a." but, you know, enough is enough. my -- i've got -- i'm the father of three daughters. this weekend they all said, dad, how can this go on? and i, like i think most of us, realize that there are ways to get to rationale gun

scorecard with the heritage action. he was 98 and i was closing in on and 80. getting there were a couple of votes that separated us. other than that i'm not quite sure where we disagree. i would think philosophically we're on the same pace. hopefully we will continue to work together. i look forward to hearing more from the center. >> last question. >> [no microphone] >> i think he would say do not forget it is about going up in life. it is about moving forward. we define that differently. some see the senate as a move up. i certainly do as well in a way. i am hoping that the message the good lord place of my heart is a leap forward. we will have an opportunity to let the message of real hope and opportunity resonates in places where it has not been before. thank you very much.

meaningful action and all but guarantee the next atrocity is only a news cycle away. the media calls semiautomatic firearms machine guns. they claim these civilian semiautomatic firearms are used by the military. they tell us that the 223 surround one of the most powerful rifle calibers when all of these claims are factly untrue. they don't know what they are talking about. worse they pert wait the dangerous notion that one more gun ban or one more law imposed on pieceful lawful people will protect us where 20,000 other laws have failed. as brave and heroic and as self-sacrificing as those teachers were in those class rooms and as prompt and professional and well-trained as those police were when they responded, they were unable, through no fault of their own, unable to stop it. as parents, we do everything we can to keep our children safe. it's now time for us to assume responsibility for our schools. the only way, the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection. the only thing that stops a bad guy with
important role, but nothing happened without the actions of this man, and those other 52 africans onboard that vessel. theirs was the actions that set everything else in motion. so, i wanted to return to that. and i also wanted to question what had seemed to me to become one of the main arguments about the amistad case, and that was that it was a great success story about the american legal system. the fact that the supreme court could rule in their favor proved that the american legal system was the hero of the case, alongside john quincy adams. to which i ask, do you mean the same legal system that was holding two and a half million people in bondage at that moment? that's the hero of the story? i don't think so. i think we have to go back and look at the rebellion itself, and especially to look at those africans who met the rebellion. so what we have in both history and film, is actually very good history from above. history that stresses the likes of john quincy adams. what i wanted to do was to write a different kind of history, what anna called history from below. whose history is i
